So last month I made the trip down to Coventry again for the NK Cells biopsy. I had a brief chat with the professor before the procedure, my first result was in the normal range. He prescribed me some cyclogest to use from day 21 of my cycle (oh hello old friend... can't say I've missed you 😂).
There was a bit of running around as I needed to get the prescription from their pharmacy before they closed but I was eventually taken through for the biopsy.
As it was quite late most of the staff had gone home so the professor was the chaperone for the procedure, he congratulated me at the end for 'the biopsy of the day' (basically because I was tough and didn't cry or flinch 😂). It was a bit more uncomfortable than last time but it's really not as bad as I would have thought before deciding to go ahead with it.
I got an email this week with my results... I was in the high bracket for the cycle day I was on at the time of the biopsy. I have a phone consultation with the professor next week to discuss the results and a treatment plan.
After the first biopsy result came back normal I wasn't expecting to have a high result this time. I felt such a sense of relief after I read the results, finally there may be a reason why I've lost four babies. Finally we may be able to do something different to help us achieve our dream.
The clinic only used to do one biopsy as part of their trial/research, but they decided to change to two biopsies as the first is just a snapshot of your cycle for one month. I'm proof that they were justified in changing to two biopsies.
Is that a glimmer of light I see at the end of the tunnel?!
